Maternity Style: The Coat

You know how some women get all weepy eyed and hormonal at the sight of a newborn and turn to their partner and say, "I want a(nother) baby!"?

Well, I get that way when I look at the Hatch Collection maternity line.

Especially the coats.  Oh, god.  The coats.  



My ovaries just exploded.

I had a summer pregnancy, so there was no need for a coat, but if you are pregnant right now...INVEST.

Don't give me the business about you can just wear your regular coat, it's sized up a little so you can wear a sweater, blah blah blah.  Buy a maternity coat.  For a more authoritative voice, read this post by the Pregnant Fashionista as to why it's necessary.  

And while we're at it, let me add another reason: babywearing.

In the winter, babywearing is often the warmest and easiest way to get around with an infant.  You will want a coat that will fit comfortably over the carrier on your shoulders and be able to wrap around the baby in the front.  A maternity coat will give you the wiggle room to bundle that baby up and get out for a walk.

Now, please excuse me, I need to convince my husband to have another baby in time to buy that coat.

  1. Lady, I KNOW. I have been lusting after that sage green Hatch coat. I am buying a maternity coat this time around, since my due date is Jan. 1. The one I really want is the Japanese Weekend Mama Coat. It comes with a HAT for the BABY for goodness' sake.

  2. That coat is super cute and I love the idea of being able to comfortably babywear in the winter. Congrats on the next baby!
